Y’all, in the last year we have seen an ABSOLUTE EXPLOSION of plus-size brands entering the arena, butttttt we haven’t seen a super slow uptake for more plus size masculine garb. While I identify as a Hard Femme, it makes me sad to see my bbs bummed out because they can’t find clothes to express their gender.

What’s a cutie masculine presenting person to do?

This blog post is all about masculine plus size clothing.

Plus Size Masculine Clothing

Utilize some ~creative problem solving~, that’s what!

Below, I’ve listed clothing brands who aren’t afraid to butt heads with the gender binary. I also know some great plus-size stylists, so if you’re in need of someone to hire (to avoid sad gender feel breakdowns in front of your computer), drop me a line and I’ll connect ya!

Also – be sure to bookmark this post!  I’m constantly updating this guide! 


Tips for Shopping for Plus Size Masculine Clothing

  • Stretch is our friend! When looking at clothing online, look for words like: jersey, spandex, lycra, polyester, etc. 100% cotton works for t-shirts, but usually means pants or other garments won’t have stretch
  • Size up! Fit the largest part of your body, and then plan on getting your clothes tailored!
  • Explore new options! No one is ever going to go shopping and love 100% of what they try on! If you get frustrated while shopping, remind yourself, “This is normal!”

[Note:  This blog post was first written in 2019, and was last updated on February 7, 2023!  While I do my my best to keep my posts up-to-date, brands do like to change things up. Without warning!! So please be sure to double check or tRiPlE cHeCk all info with the respective brands before deciding to make a purchase!]

Uhhh – REal Quick – What Do We Mean by “Masculine”?

Discussing “masculine fashion,” can be quite a conversation, my friend.

I covered this topic // discussion more at length in this blog post listing other outfit ideas for plus size masculine and androgynous clothing. It’s frustrating that we have to use binary language to describe gender expression, when GENDER ISN’T BINARY.

All in all, this post was meant to be a resource for my plus size and fat identified friends, lovers and community members. I don’t think of it as a magnum opus on how we can each individually express ourselves via our gender presentation, but I do hope that you’ll find brands in this listicle roundup thingy that will help YOU in YOUR quest to write your own magnum opus on gender, fashion, and the words we use to describe clothing.

OKAY, let’s get started!

Real talk, I would like to see more plus size and husky humans on the website.  I think the brand could really grow if they had more plus size or husky models!

5.  Sharpe Suiting for Androgynous Suits

I first found out about Sharpe Suiting at the DapperQ fashion show in Brooklyn.  This brand is, well, SHARP. I’ve never used this brand, and I don’t know anyone super well IRL that has used them – but I loved seeing their looks at the DapperQ show!

From the brand: “Since 2013, Sharpe Suiting has been helping brave individuals showcase exactly who they are. we know being yourself isn’t easy, so we’ve streamlined a process to help you feel like you.”

  • Sizing: See website

6. Madewell – Plus Size Clothing for Masculine & Butch Folks

Okay, so the first time I wrote this roundup, I didn’t include Madewell.  Which is such a shame, because this plus size brand has a variety of plus size clothing that I think masculine of center // butch // etc folks would appreciate! Madewell is constantly adding new pieces, so if one of the items below is sold out, be sure to click the link to their homepage to see EVERYTHING they currently have in stock! <3

  • Sizing: Up to a US 28 or 4X

7. ASOS Masculine of Center Fashion

Y’all, ASOS is almost the first “go-to” place I tell masculine folks to check out when they’re looking to add pieces to their wardrobe. They offer pieces all along the spectrum, and I like to order from ASOS Plus Size Mens sometimes! ASOS currently has some mens cut floral suits that I am DYING OVERRRRR (whatever your gender, you’ll look scrumptious in one!), as well as great work wear and athleisure options. (Updated note: Currently, the ASOS Plus Size Men’s section is a bit wonky online, so you may have to click around a bit! Be sure to use the filters at the top of the page to narrow your search based on size, fit, color, etc.)

  • Sizing: Up to a US 24 – check sizing on each piece!

Looking over at ASOS Curve, I recommend looking at pieces, and mentally placing your head on the model’s frame. That’s sounds macabre, but doing so will allow you to look at pieces and imagine them on your body, verses a hyper feminized form.

Update: I’m kind of bummed a lot of the models are no longer plus size.

8. TomboyX – Masculine LGBT Clothing

Y’all, this is a brand that CELEBRATES masculine of center//androgynous/gender bbs. Their undies and PJs (and socks!!) are super soft and comfy. They also have masculine plus size swimsutis and workout wear.

  • Sizing: Up to a 6X in apparel 

Shop here!

9. Target – Plus Size Masculine Clothes

Last, but never least in my heart (!!), we have plus size masculine clothing from Target! Their Goodfellow Men’s Plus Size line is known for having a good amount of stretch. Usually there is WAY more online than in-store, so I recommend shopping online and returning what doesn’t work!

Also, Target allows other brands to sell on their website, so I always click the “Sold By” filter button and select “Target”! That way I know I’m buying a brand actually made or sold by Target!

  • Sizing: Up to a 4X in apparel 

FINALLY, I know that dividing clothing by gender is silly — but heads up! Both the “Women’s” and ‘men’s” plus size sections on have great plus size masculine clothes! (Check out Targets lines Goodfellow & Co and Universal Thread!)

So, fun fact – DXL is one of the most popular brands for plus size men – but, as we allllll know – we can shop where we want!

DXL has just about every type of clothing on their website, and they also have stores across the USA!

Depending on your body type, you may find that their pants don’t work for you [hips are a whole thing], and other pieces [blazers, t-shirts, etc] do.  I encourage you to test out what works for you!

I can hear what you’re thinking – “ELOQUII? FOR REALS?”

  • Sizing: Up to a size 28

Shop here!
